PLDT recently launched their new logos in an effort to show their renewed commitment to giving the best service possible for the Filipino people!. A month after at Shangri-La the Fort they announced even more projects that serve to fortify their claims and promises with last month's logo announcement!
“Smart has built a legacy of bringing mobile innovations into the life of all Filipinos, and with the digital wave upon us, we have come up with innovative products and services to bring the real-life benefits of connectivity to as many Filipinos as possible,” said PLDT and Smart Chairman and CEO Manny V. Pangilinan.
“Our multi-pronged efforts range from bringing the smartphone to the hands of more digital newbies, to providing the most awesome content for young digital natives, to making sure that everyone will enjoy the best data experience. Our goal is to make sure no one gets left behind by this digital shift,” said Smart Wireless Consumer Operations Head Katrina Luna-Abelarde, who led the aptly titled Smart Unbox presentation at Shangri-la at the Fort.They let us experienced their new Starmobile Play Click 1288 Bundle with Php 100 worth of prepaid load and had us install their new SmartLife app from the Google Play store. Little did we know that this one app will be the next big thing because aside from being a medium to get amazing deals to several merchants, we can get perks like free 1 pc. Chickenjoy from Jollibee and a free ticket to any SM cinema!
The kicker is that you will be able to watch live streams of the upcoming Olympics on the app itself. They then showed a video documenting their one night event along EDSA-Guadalupe when they unveiled that Smart was giving a way a Gigabyte of free data just to ease the tensions of people stuck in traffic!
Quite the bang, but it ain't over yet! They also emphasised their new @Smartcares twitter handle where you can ask questions and be responded to in real time! Aside from that, www.martythesmarty.com and @martysmarty on Twitter was announced to be everyone's go to guy for all kinds of questions and concerns about mobile data and the internet.
Smart also enhances its My Smart mobile app recently, it's a simple and convenient app which allows both postpaid and prepaid users to register and check status of their promos, load up their accounts, and redeem perks.
Then together with MCA Music, Smart also kicks off the Smart Music Live last July 14 where they treated subscribers with a concert featuring the biggest names in the industry that includes: Ely Buendia, Up Dharma Down and Nathan Sykes at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. It'll continue with hit artist like Selena Gomez on July 31, In the Mix Third Eye Blind, Panic! At the Disco, James Bay, Elle King and Twin Pines on August 18, and Shawn Mendes in October.
Because speed and size matter in the online world, Smart also announced its Super Speed LTE SIMs as well as Giga Surf 50, its biggest data offer with 1GB data for surfing and apps, plus free 300 MB for video streaming on YouTube and iflix, valid for three days at only P50. As an innovative feature, this 1 GB data can be shared with other prepaid subscribers through the Smart’s Pasadata service.
And lastly, Smart partnered with YouTube to create Launchpad! Launchpad is a program to help budding content creators upload their own work and broadcast it to the world via Upload Stations all over the country. Smart will be tapping industry experts for workshops that will lead to a selection of the most deserving content creators to fly to LA for a once-in-a-lifetime experience of collaborating with the biggest YouTube Stars.
"At the center of all these new products and services is our effort to transform our networks into the country’s most extensive and data capable infrastructure, so we are able to deliver faster, more reliable and more affordable Internet services across the country,” Pangilinan added.Smart means business with these products announcements but it still isn't over.
